Who gave you the impression it's required to drain a loop every six months? .....cuz it's not.
Also aluminum is not magnetic.

Theirs a few people I talked said It needs to be drained every six months, a year max. It's why I have avoided watercooling for so long.

That's an overly cautious recommendation, usually only propagated those with inexperience. A year is a good rule of thumb.

I think I'll stick with AIO for time being, I rather my PC be maintenance free, then having to worry if I have to change the water in the system.

2. My S8 for what it's worth took 9 weeks from order to arrival

3. No Aluminum is not magnetic

Thanks, I hope the wait is worth it.

I understand where you're coming from. This will be my last watercooled build.....hopefully. After doing this for a few years, I'm just ready to hang it up and stick to more traditional builds. Aside from the work and maintenance that goes into watercooling, I cringe at the amount of money I've invested in these types of builds over the years, money that could have been spent on higher end components like latest gen CPUs and better GPU setups.
But it has been fun. smile.gif

Something's wrong with the forum software - it says I'm in the Case Labs thread?? biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Not that there aren't some gorgeous air builds in the CLs. I could have bought another couple Case Labs if I hadn't updated my loop!

Guys, I've seen the s3 pedestal build, (just the pedestal, not the actual s3)what do you guys think of it? I really like the idea of a computer built in a pedestal and I think I could totally do something like that.

IMO, I don't really like the way the S3 looks with the pedestal. The dimensions looks look weird to me.

No, I mean just the pedestal. A full on computer in just a pedestal. Forget the s3, I'm talking about just the pedestal.

Love the pedestals! So glad I got mine for the s8 - really expanding my cooling capacity and I like the aesthetic
